The Report
Despite matching their Middlesex rivals for much of the first half and despite only trailing by 1 goal at the interval, the Rebels capitulated during the 2nd 45 minutes and fell to an embarrassing 4-0 defeat.

An even opening 20 minutes resulted in both sides trading periods of pressure, without testing either goalkeeper. Laurence Brown's shot was blocked, Danny Tilbury missed the target from a good position following a corner for the home side, and Yashwa Romeo's mishit shot went out for a throw-in being the best that either side could manage.

That was until former rebel Chris Robinson converted Kevin Warner's header, despite claims that a Slough free-kick had illegally been taken by an Uxbridge player in the build-up to the goal.

The Rebels sought to get back into the game but to no avail, with Byron Bubb (pictured right) wasting 2 free-kicks from promising positions. Minutes later Bubb wasted another set piece, this time a corner that failed to beat the first defender.

However, Slough's best chance of the match thus far came when Yashwa Romeo's (pictured left) effort forced a good low save from Uxbridge 'keeper Gary Ross. The home side were however threatening to extend their lead, with Jamie Jackson saving Kevin Warner's shot, minutes before Gary Ross again denied Yashwa Romeo, this time tipping his 20 yard effort wide of the post.

Slough came out for the second half a completely different side. They weren't chasing down balls, putting pressure on opposition players or even communicating with each other very well. The home side had complete dominance over the midfield, and this paid dividends when Danny Tilbury doubled their lead after capitalising on a very poor kick from Jackson to get the ball in off the post.

Slough did then force a couple of half-chances, but two Rory Smith headers from successive corners came to nothing. Barely five minutes later, the game was put beyond doubt when Lee Tunnell volleyed the ball into the top corner.

It was only another 5 minutes that separated the last Uxbridge goal from the next, as the so-called "Rebels" stopped playing. It was Lee Tunnell again who fired past Jamie Jackson (pictured right) having been put through by Dave Warner.

At this point it looked as though Uxbridge would run riot and run away with the game, and that the Rebels were in for a good thrashing. But perhaps they felt sorry for the travelling Slough fans who had to put up with a completely clueless second half performance, as they seemed to settle for the 4-0 win. Dave Warner saw his penalty saved low to Jamie Jackson's left after he had been fouled by Dean Harper inside the box.

So, at 4-0 down and the game beyond us, Slough started to put the Uxbridge goal under a little pressure. Dean Harper's header hit the crossbar and Gary Ross was forced to dive well to keep out substitute Roy Gumbs' (pictured above left) header but it was far too little far too late.
